As you know by now, this whole issue of the hemlines at work has been killing me. It’s funny, isn’t it, once you’re committed to a new fashion rule how wholly it can consume you. I remember when I was first diagnosed with Raynaud’s disease (an autoimmune issue that makes your fingers and toes dangerously cold in winter months). I went on a hunt for mittens and gloves like no girl has ever done before–cashmere, silk, leather, and suede. H&M, Ugg, Barneys… I went everywhere. Mom and I recently sorted through my astonishing glove collection and snickered just a bit, realizing how crazy-fashion-hoarder we can both get at times.
A similar issue with the skirts is happening now. Except that I am broke. So, the long skirts are not as easily acquired as the mittens were long ago when I had no expenses. But I digress. This entirely too long intro is simply to say that I have found my next must-buy, and I wanted to share it with you. Calypso is by far one of my favorite places to go for pretty things. While perusing their sale section online today, I found this amazing skirt. It comes in hazelnut (which, frankly, looks more like pink to me) and this effortlessly chic navy. The draping silk detail and chic ribbon edges are divine; I imagine it floating against the body like a dream. Oh, and they still have most sizes 0-10 available, on sale for $129. Just sayin! Happy Saturday, my little dumplings. And as always, happy shopping!
